Frankfurt: Guided Bike Tour

1. Frankfurt: Guided Bike Tour

This bike tour is ideal for both Frankfurt old-timers and new visitors to the city. The tour offers the perfect mix of famous landmarks (the Römer, European Central Bank, the Goethe House, the Old Town), and insider tips. Your qualified tour guide will show you the most beautiful sides of Frankfurt. Your tour begins in the heart of Sachsenhausen, one of the most popular districts in the city. Numerous old buildings from the Gründerzeit period give the neighborhood its flair, as well as numerous trendy bars, cozy cafes, and a wide selection of restaurants and traditional cider taverns. Here traditional food is served in a rustic setting together with cider. Sachsenhausen was dominated by orchards up until the 19th century and apple cider was produced here. Cycle through small streets and the painters’ quarter to the southern banks of the Main River with the famous Museum Embankment. Here you will find the Städel Museum with the spectacular extension and the renowned exhibitions, the Liebighaus, and the Museum of Applied Art. Cross over the Holbeinsteg bridge to the other side of the Main River and ride through Frankfurt’s old town. The Römer overlooks the old royal road leading to the Frankfurt Cathedral (which isn’t actually a cathedral) and the beautiful half-timbered buildings. St. Paul’s Church, the cradle of German democracy, is located only a few meters away. You will then ride along the Großer Hirschgraben to Goethe’s family residence. The famous writer was born here and spent his youth here. He impressively described this time in his autobiography Poetry and Truth. The green Alleenring was built on the former medieval line of defense in the 20th century. Cycle through the heart of the city on traffic-free roads to the new and old opera houses, and admire the impressive cityscape with its high-rise towers. A detour takes you to the old stock exchange with the popular motif of the bull and bear. Back on the Alleenring, you will cycle east of the city and return to the Main River. The new landmark of the city will then be located directly in front of you. The new tower of the European Central Bank (ECB) is the impressive counterpoint to the high-rise buildings located on the west side. One of the most popular bars in the city is situated right by the water, at the foot of the former wholesale market hall, which is now part of the ECB. The Oosten bar has a great terrace overlooking the city. Ride across the much acclaimed new bridge from the East Harbor back to the southern banks of the Main River. You will then cycle a few meters back to the starting point in Sachsenhausen, where the tour ends. At the end of the tour your tour guide will show you the traditional cider taverns in Frankfurt. The bike route takes you along quiet, traffic-free cycle paths and roads. Your tour guide will provide detailed information on the sights during regular stops along the way.

Bad Schwalbach: Hidden Moors Historic E-bike Tour

4. Bad Schwalbach: Hidden Moors Historic E-bike Tour

Bad Schwalbach in western Hintertaunus is located in a scenic, wooded area in the left side valley of the Aar, through which the Nesselbach flows. For more than 300 years, the state baths shone as one of the excellent spas in Germany and even for a full century as a first-rate luxury bath. The earliest mention of Langinswalbach is from 1352. That was the name of the place until 1927. According to a legend from the 19th century, Bad Schwalbach and its healing springs are said to have been created by a sorceress. The city is one of the oldest Hessian state spas. The tasty water from the wine fountain was even shipped across Europe in barrels and jugs. Carbonic steel springs and the moor permitted indications with which gynecological diseases, heart and circulatory diseases, rheumatism and much more were treated. Especially for Bad Schwalbach are the mild, oxygen-rich mountain air and the moderate stimulating climate - both remedies for spa guests. How could it be otherwise, Goethe also expressed his interest in this "mountain" and its "oddities" after he received the writing "Die Heilquellen im Taunus" from Privy Councilor Isaak von Gerning, who had been a very good friend since 1793. We are on the way on the traces of the Roman past of the place, its glamorous spa times and cycle through its charming, wooded surroundings to tranquil and relaxing places in the Taunus landscape. Discover a city and its surroundings that for a full century was a luxury spa of the first order.

Great guided bike tour for everyone! It was totally comfortable, there was no rush and if someone didn't make it past the green phase, they waited. For us it was around 14 km. We saw some things and were told great stories, dates and facts. At this point a compliment to our tour guide Marvin Afterwards there was a tip where you can go and have a great apple wine and possibly a hand cheese with music. The tour is really highly recommended! Many Thanks

Our Tourgyde was just great, competent, uncomplicated and spontaneous; the group athletic and disciplined. The rental bikes were perfectly fine and the rental process without any problems. It was an all-round success, which we are happy to recommend.
